    An institution with conflicting priorities and vague direction.

    Pros

    Working with Cadets is a rewarding experience of mentorship.

    Cons

    High premium placed on control and dominance as organizational values. Very little interest in "excellence" when compared to the warm blanked of failure avoidance. Abnormally high rate of officers who fail to promote on account of their tour at the Academy. Low opportunities for responsibility, supervision, or career success.
